Stayed for 1 night of our visit to Rome and after the initial WOW factor on arrival at appearances I was actually a little disappointed with my stay here. The concierge and reception staff were very efficient on arrival and the room was lovely. Very comfortable and very clean and absolutely beautiful as was the entire hotel. The bar staff here were lovely, very friendly and attentive and made an amazing G&T!
We visited the SPA attached which in itself was fabulous, had every facility you could think of and in a very relaxing environment. We did not book the Spa with the room as we did not know if we'd use it. Online it was advertised at 12euro per person for the stay, on the day it cost us 35euro per person per visit and then a mandatory 5euro each for a little swimming hat. We felt a bit ripped off at this point considering we were staying at the hotel and knew what the actual resident offer was. The staff were a little frosty as well.
We were expecting great things at breakfast however the hot choice was in fact cold, the pastries ran out and the service was slow.
My overall thought was that we paid for the setting as opposed to the service. I cant say I'd visit again.
